Very good steak still. A good rustic dining experience where you share tables with others or eat on a low table or around a fireplace. No other choice except how you'd like your pepper fillet steak - rare or medium rare!. Good quality though and...More

Even though Chef Laurent runs his kitchen from Nothando Backpackers his food was delicious. Very limited menu but still well worth the visit.

Chez Laurent is well worth visiting for an excellent Fillet steak with perfect shoestring chips and a delicious salad. Laurent also made a Tarte Tatin to order which was absolutely delicious. One of our best meals in Plett!
